Have I got this about right?

1. You've never been to the north.

2. You're top choices are/include FP and Syracuse.

Therefore,

3. You are going to turn into an icicle.  Only Minnesota and the Dakotas get as cold as NH, and Syracuse is no better.

4. You'll see how much prettier (nature/scenery) the north is.

5. You'll feel embarassed for worrying about sweet tea, though you won't miss it once you learned to drink hot cocoa/coffee/tea (those are three different items).

Almost. I have been to the North, but never lived there. My top choice is Pierce. I think someone else is considering Syracuse. I don't doubt it's pretty, I'm just not sure I'll be able to tell with all of the snow piled on top of everything.

I don't like sweet tea. Iced tea with no sugar or lemon, yes. I can make my own...it's no big deal. Even an ignorant Southerner such as myself has experienced coffee, cocoa, and tea. Further I realize they are indeed separate beverages. Perhaps the biggest adaptation to the North will be learning to deal with the ever-condescending attitudes...

Silly ass! I was summarizing the OP's concerns.  Way to recognize the thread!  ::) (Doing my best to live up to the expectations of condescension. By the way, NH isn't condescending in my experience; it is suspicious, though.)

How can you call the north pretty? The sun goes away in NH from Oct through May.

Well, if it wasn't obvious . . .

(Sun--->Pretty) is not a valid conditional to me.  Nor to most people, for that matter.  Also, there is a lot of sun in NH from Oct to May.  Only by living in Pittsburgh, can one grasp the meaning of "overcast."  

The only place in the south, to me, that can rival the natural beauty of NH would be eastern Tennessee/western NC, but not really.

FWIW: I turned down a few higher ranked schools (one rather significantly higher) for Pitt.

Let us emphasize that someone, in this very thread, offered to cross their balls.

Probably dinner.

Does anyone on this board know if it is possible to rent a vehicle from any of the major companies with a tow hitch? If so that could save a LOT of money as renting a large U-haul (boo-hiss) from Boston to New Orleans is between 2-3 K while renting an equivlent trailer is roughly $675

uhaul, budget, and penske all have the car dolly or car carrier.  or are you asking about towing a trailer with a rented vehicle?  if the latter, sorry, i don't know.

29
I prefer Penske to the other companies, though a well-crafter complaint letter goes a long way at Uhaul(I received a refund of $400, plus hotel and food expenses on a $1200 rental last year).

Does anyone know of anyone else that has received a private loan with a cosigner?  If I need anything beyond the guaranteed fedaid, I will need to do this.
